Challenge accepted

"The final of the German Championships was fun, but also very challenging, especially due to the high time pressure and complex tasks," explains Carina Bühler. Each day, the finalists faced new challenges. "We had to create a 3D drawing for a component, programme the system and then mill the part." A total of 12 young talents took part in the final, for which the participants had to qualify in several preliminary rounds.


Outstanding achievements during her apprenticeship

The 19-year-old is currently in her fourth year of training at the Röchling Industrial site in Burgrieden. Carina Bühler had already attracted attention during her apprenticeship due to her excellent performance. "We are delighted that Ms Bühler has taken up the challenge and are proud of her excellent placement," emphasises Rudolf Karremann, Managing Director at the site. "Good training for our junior staff is of fundamental importance to us. That's why we support our trainees and provide them with experienced trainers who they can turn to at any time." The fact that Ms Bühler was awarded such a good ranking is testament to the high quality of training at the site.


Top opportunities for women in technical professions

Carina Bühler was the only woman to take part in the final. The profession of cutting machine operator is otherwise male-dominated. She knew she wanted to pursue a technical career when she was still at school. "It's important to me to do something with my hands," says the trainee. The fact that she works as a woman in a male-dominated profession doesn't bother her at all. "Women have excellent opportunities in industrial and technical professions. That's why we are committed to introducing girls to industrial-technical professions while they are still at school," explains Michael Haller, also Managing Director at the site. Carina Bühler's good placing in the final of the German championships shows that this commitment is paying off. And the 19-year-old has already qualified for next year's competition at European level.
